Our Time Now

length: 2:51
additional guest: Mia Koo

Oh oh oh oh

There will be no rules tonight
If there were we'd break 'em
Nothing's gonna stop us now
Let's get down to it
Nervous hands and anxious smiles
I can feel you breathing
This is right where we belong
Turn up the music

Oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city sight together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now

This is more than just romance
It's an endless summer
I can feel the butterflys, leading me through it
Take my heart, I'll take your hand
As we're falling under
This is an addiction girl
Let's give in to it

Oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city sight together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now

Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Now
It's a dance
Get up
Come on brothers
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh

This is the dance for all the lovers
Takin' a chance for one another
Finally it's our time now
These are the times that we'll remember
Breaking the city sight together
Finally it's our time now
It's our time now
(It's our time now)
It's our time now
(It's our time now)
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Finally it's our time now

Come Back to Me

length: 3:24
Everything you say or do
I am always there for you
Whether you're laughing or you're screaming
No one else could take your place
I will always see your face
When I'm awake and when I am dreaming

'Cause I believe there's a place for you and in this crazy world

If you'd come running back to me I'll be here waiting
'Cause I still believe that I'm not worth saving
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place
Come back to me, I'll be here waiting
'Cause I'm on my knees and my life's not fading
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place

I can't stand to watch you go
'Cause in my head deep down I know
I don't wanna live without you
I love the way we stay up late
The way you laugh at your mistakes
I love everything about you

'Cause I believe there's a place for you and in this crazy world

If you'd come running back to me I'll be here waiting
'Cause I still believe that I'm not worth saving
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place
Come back to me, I'll be here waiting
'Cause I'm on my knees and my life's not fading
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place

No, don't want you to go
Can't move on
My heart, and my arms, and my bed girl
Quit messing with my head
Say that you're coming back to stay right here with me

If you'd come running back to me I'll be here waiting
'Cause I still believe that I'm not worth saving
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place
Come back to me, I'll be here waiting
'Cause I'm on my knees and my life's not fading
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place

Come back to me
I still believe
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place
Come back to me
I'm on my knees
If you could see the sad look on my face
You'd be in your car headed back to my place

Hate (I Really Don't Like You)

length: 3:45
Love, love, love, love, love, love
Woo!

You were everything I wanted
You were everything a girl could be
Then you left me brokenhearted
Now you don't mean a thing to me
All I wanted was your
Love, love, love, love, love, love

[Chorus]
Hate is a strong word
But I really, really, really don't like you
Now that it's over
I don't even know what I liked about you
Brought you around
And you just brought me down
Hate is a strong word
But I really, really, really don't like you

I really don't like you

Thought that everything was perfect
Isn't that how it's supposed to be?
Thought you thought that I was worth it
Now I think a little differently
All I wanted was your
Love, love, love, love, love, love

[Chorus]

Now that it's over
You can't hurt me
Now that it's over
You can't bring me down

(Oh, oh)

All I wanted was your
Love, love, love, love, love, love

[Chorus]

I really don't like you
I really don't like you
I really don't like you

You and Me

length: 2:19
You and me, we like the same kind of music
That's why we, make a good you and me
We got style, baby we know how to use it
That's why we, make a good you and me

You know what I'm going to say before my mouth even makes a sound
And that's why we make a good you and me

You and me, we couldn't stand being normal
That's why we, make a good you and me
We both laugh, at the most random situations
That's the key, baby don't you agree?

You know what I'm going to say before my mouth even makes a sound
And that's why we make a good you and me
I know from the sound of your breathing exactly what you are feeling
This is why we make a good you and me
Make a good you and me
Make a good you and me
You and me

Ah ah ah
You and me, all we need is each other
That's why we, make a good you and me

You know what I'm going to say before my mouth even makes a sound
And that's why we make a good you and me
I know from the sound of your breathing exactly what you are feeling
This is why we make a good you and me
Make a good you and me
Make a good you and me
You and me

Friends Don't Let Friends Dial Drunk

length: 3:23
Those are all very beautiful words
But actions speak louder
In case you haven't heard, I'm all alone
While you're out on the town drinkin' with your friends
You can say all these beautiful things
But they don't mean nothing
No, they don't mean a thing
Gotta back it up
But you keep backing down
Tell me how this ends

If you think it's possible then anything is possible
But I think you're impossible
I hope you prove me wrong

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

Same old thing happens every night
You get me going, and then you say goodbye
I'm heated up
And you just leave me there to take care of myself
Don't get mad, don't get all wound up
Just get your act together, or baby give it up
Just let me know if I should hit the road or if you want my help

If you think it's possible then anything is possible
But I think you're impossible
I hope you prove me wrong

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know
You only call me when there's no one around
You only wanna come up when you know I'm going down
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

You gotta show me you mean it, if you really mean it
You're talking to me like you mean it, and I don't believe it

You only call me after you've had a few
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know
You only call me when there's no one around
You only wanna come up when you know I'm going down
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

You only call me after you've had a few (oh oh oh)
You only want to hang out when you've got nothing to do (oh oh oh)
Don't tell me you love me and act like you don't
Oh, if you really want me you just gotta let me know

Making a Memory

length: 2:50
Friday night's such a beautiful night
Where you going?
I didn't mean to blow it
You're upset and I don't know what I said
But I'm sorry
Don't you give about me?

Take off your jacket
Don't walk out that door

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Don't pretend you're not smiling again
Let's just leave it
You know I didn't mean it
Don't know why we put up such a fight
Over nothing
When we could still be something

Take off your jacket
Don't walk out that door
There's no need to leave anymore

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Can't do this myself
No, I need some help
Wanted some help

Friday night's such a beautiful night
Now you're staying

You and me
We should be
Making a memory whenever we're together, yeah
Look at me
Can't you see
We were meant to be
Making a memory

Friday night's such a beautiful night (making a memory)
Now you're saying
(Making a memory)
Don't know why we put up such a fight (making a memory)
Over nothing
(Making a memory)

So Damn Clever

length: 3:03
Thought that I was in control
And in my mind you were mine, what did I know?
I didn't listen when they said
That you were fake, manipulating boys to bed

I thought they had you wrong
The morning you were gone

Every time I see you face
I can see the games you play
Nobody can break hearts better
Why do you have to be so damn clever?
Turns you on
Always getting what you want
Made me believe that we'd be together
Why do you have to be so damn clever?

We were over from the start
Intertwined just in time to fall apart (fall apart)
I can't believe I missed the signs
You were cold and they all told me not to try

But I thought they had you wrong
The morning you were gone
Just vanished from my life
Didn't even say goodbye

Every time I see you face
I can see the games you play
Nobody can break hearts better
Why do you have to be so damn clever?
Turns you on
Always getting what you want
Made me believe that we'd be together
Why do you have to be so damn clever?

You pulled all the right strings
Saying all the right things
Now that you've gotten what you wanted you don't want it anymore

Every time I see you face
I can see the games you play
Nobody can break hearts better
Why do you have to be so damn clever?
Turns you on
Always getting what you want
Made me believe that we'd be together
Why do you have to be so damn clever?

Oh
Why do you have to be so damn clever?
Oh
Why do you have to be so damn clever?
Oh

Made me believe that we would be together
Why do you have to be so damn clever?

Tearin' Us Apart

length: 2:37
I just got off the phone with you
And something wasn't right
I wish that what I said was true
But I messed up tonight

I wish that you could understand the way
I felt when she looked at me today
Oh oh oh oh
Oh when did I start tearin' us apart?
I'm tearin' us apart

I just got off the phone with you
Like any other night
I know that I said I loved you too
But she was on my mind

I wish that you could understand the way
I felt when she looked at me today
Oh oh oh oh
Oh when did I start tearin' us apart?
I'm tearin' us apart

At this time in my life I have made up my mind
Everyone thinks that I'm crazy
But I cannot deny all these feelings inside
All I can say is that I'm sorry
I'm so sorry

I just got off the phone with you
I didn't even cry
I just did what I had to do
I had to say goodbye

I wish that you could understand the way
I felt when she looked at me today
Oh oh oh oh
Oh when did I start tearin' us apart?
I'm tearin' us apart

Understand the way
Looked at me today
Oh oh oh oh
Oh when did I start tearin' us apart?
I'm tearin' us apart
Oh oh oh oh

Write You a Song

length: 4:02
I don't know how to make lots of money
I got debts that I'm trying to pay
I can't buy you nice things, like big diamond rings
But that don't mean much anyway
I can't give you the house you've been dreaming
If I could I would build it alone
I'd be out there all day, just hammering away
Make us a place of our own

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without you

I don't k I'd make a good soldier
I don't believe in being violent and cruel
I don't know how to fight, but I'll draw blood tonight
If somebody tries hurting you

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without you

It's set on the table (it's out on the table)
Both of us knew all along (knew all along)
I've got your loving and you've got my song

I don't know how to make lots of money
I don't know all the right things to do
I can't say where we'll go, but the one thing I know
Is how to be a good man to you
Until I die that's what I'll do

I will write you a song
That's how you'll k my love is still strong
I will write you a song
And you'll know from this song that I just can't go on without
I will write you a song (I will write you a song)
That's how you'll k my love is still strong (love is still strong)
I will write you a song
And you know from this song that I just can't go on without you

Gimme a Chance

length: 2:58
Why don't you open up your eyes?
These are more than passing glances
Why don't you say what's on your mind?
'Cause I'm taking all the chances

If I'm not everything you wanted, oh
If I'm not everything you need

Then you can walk right out the door (you can walk right out the door)
And you can walk right out on me (you can walk right out on me)
But you're never gonna see just how good it's gonna be until you gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh

What do you see in all these guys?
Don't you know they're just pretending?
Somehow you always seem surprised
That it's not a happy ending
Don't you want a happy ending?

If I'm not everything you wanted, oh
If I'm not everything you need

Then you can walk right out the door (you can walk right out the door)
And you can walk right out on me (you can walk right out on me)
But you're never gonna see just how good it's gonna be until you gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh
Yeah you can walk right out the door (you can walk right out the door)
And you can say goodbye to me (you can say goodbye to me)
But I know you're going to stay and be happy everyday if you just gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh

All I want to do is spend my life with you
And all I want from you is a chance so I can prove my love to you
Just gimme a chance
Gimme a chance

If I'm not everything you wanted, oh
If I'm not everything you need

Then you can walk right out the door (you can walk right out the door)
And you can walk right out on me (you can walk right out on me)
But you're never gonna see just how good it's gonna be until you gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh
Yeah you can walk right out the door (you can walk right out the door)
And you can say goodbye to me (you can say goodbye to me)
But I know you're going to stay and be happy everyday if you just gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh

Why don't you open up your eyes?
Just gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh
Why don't you say what's on your mind?
Just gimme a chance
Gimme a chance, oh

Figure It Out

length: 2:46
She says, I don't take her seriously
And I don't, so I guess I'd have to agree
I didn't mean that
I really mean that
I know, she gets mad at me all the time
But that's fine, I don't let it ruin my night
I didn't mean that
I really mean that

I watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
Figure it out as soon as I figure it out
Yeah

She says, one more time and she's out the door
Yeah yeah, haven't I heard that one before?
I didn't mean that
I really mean that
Come on, I wish she would cut me some slack
It's her fault, she's the one who keeps coming back
I didn't mean that
I really mean that

I watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
Figure it out as soon as I figure it out

All my days are all the same
I should mind but all my time's spent wasting time on her

Watch what I say
Say what I should
Something you said I misunderstood
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out
I could get there if I would just move
I like what I have and love what I lose
I'll figure it out as soon as I figure it out

I'll figure it out
Figure it out
I'll figure it out
Figure it out

Let Me Take You There

length: 3:47
I know a place that we can go to
A place where no one knows you
They won't know who we are
I know a place that we can run to
And do those things we want to
They won't know who we are

Let me take you there
I wanna take you there

I know a place that we've forgotten
A place where we won't get caught in
They won't know who we are (they won't know, won't know)
I know a place where we can hide out
And turn our hearts inside out
They won't know who we are

Let me take you there
I wanna take you there
Let me take you there
Take you there
Take you there
Ooohhh
Ooohhh
Ooohhh
Ooohhh

I know a place we'll be together
And stay this young forever
They won't know who we are

Let me take you there
I wanna take you there
Let me take you there
Take you there
Take you there
Ooohhh

We can get away to a better place if you let me take you there
We can go there now cause every second counts
Girl just let me take you there
Take you there
